THE POLYPHONIC WORLD FROM BEFORE OUR BIRTH
0 TO 14 MONTHS
HEAR/HERE is an intimate sound experience that plunges you and three performers into a sea of sounds you recognize from long before you remember anything, from before you were born. Because our first encounter with the world consists purely of sound.
And there are all manner of things for unborn ears to hear: gurgling, pounding, rumbling, rustling, but also singing, laughing, speaking, humming, strumming and crashing
… a magisterial, churning, mishmashing mother’s melody.
HEAR/HERE is a place of sound that is uncanny and surprising and yet it feels familiar.
The performance is inspired by science, technology and Flemish polyphonic music.
Nine installations invite babies (0-14 months) and one or two parents (or escorts) to sit down and experience the performance.
